Finance Philosophy

“I didn’t want to be known as the gatekeeper or the police officer. I understand why part of our job is to be a gatekeeper, but I wanted to be an enabler. We’re a fast growing business and I wanted to be someone  who supported the company by making  the right investment decisions. ”

Key Metrics

“Internally, we have about 40 proprietary metrics that we track every month and we go through a very rigorous process. Key metrics include risk factors …profitability and our backlog. We look at our orders and the funding of those orders.”

Mentoring Round

“I think attitude can be so important. If you have a positive attitude it can really help you with what ever you’re doing and with your teammates.”

Business Applications

“We have a cloud-based HRIS (Human Resource Information System)  and it really helps us monitor job performance and compensation schemes and skills. We have more than 800 employees  and understanding the skills and the backgrounds of our people really helps us when we’re trying to address a customer need.”
